Bill Fontana and Surface Reflections [us Lexington, KY]

installsite.jpgArtist Bill Fontana is opening a public art sound installation in the landscaped passageway between the Financial Center Tower, 250 W. Main Street and its parking garage in Lexington, KY on July 29, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. The project will make audible the underground Town Branch River along with the toll of the bell in the Old County Courthouse.

Speakers have been installed along the passageway between the Lexington Financial Center, the city’s blue high-rise, and an adjacent parking garage. Microphones dip beneath to pick up the sounds of Town Branch rushing by. Most people would never know the Town Branch of Elkhorn Creek runs under downtown Lexington if they were not told. There has long been no visual or audible evidence of the rushing water that runs just below the high-rise buildings and busy streets of the city — until this week.

The project will be on permanent exhibit after Thursday afternoon. Continue reading

Forest Sound Track

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_CDLBTJD4M&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

This short film is an advertisement for Japanese mobile phone company Docomo: a linear musical instrument designed by Drill Inc. is played by the descent of a wooden ball as it slowly rolls down track, sending xylophonic plinks and plonks out into the forest.

Narcelio Grud and Street Signs as Musical Instruments

PUBLIC SCULPTURE SOUND | NARCELIO GRUD from Yeah on Vimeo.

In Ceará, Brazil, Narcelio Grud has created one of the more impressive alternate uses for street signs the Urban Guide for Alternate Use has seen, and they’ve seen plenty. Narcelio transforms street signs around the city in to public instruments as part of his Musica Livre project. As the video above shows, the project is exceptional not only for its merits of installing DIY musical instruments throughout the city, but also for the range and inventiveness of the instruments themselves. From stringed instruments to xylophones, the city’s street signs’s new identities bring a smile and tune to anyone who passes by. You can’t ask for much more in a reworked sign than what you see below. The images below and many more can be found here.
